Janet "GranJan" Parrott

Janet "GranJan" Parrott, 79, of Louisville, Kentucky, went home to her Lord and Savior on Sunday, February 25, 2024.  She was born on July 5, 1944, to the late James Robert and Mildred Miller.

Janet was a nurse at Saint Mary and Elizabeth and Audubon Hospital.  She traveled the world providing healthcare missions to Guatemala, El Salvador, Dominican Republic, Ethiopia and Uganda.  Janet received a Bell Award for her years of volunteer work that included SOS and Access Justice Louisville, among many others.  She attended Camden Avenue Christian Church and then South Louisville Christian Church where she cooked meals, watched the kids, taught classes and Bible Bowl; influencing generations of young people in the South End of Louisville.  Janet's sense of humor, her passion for living and serving others, and her stubborn tenacity to keep living and loving her family and community will never be forgotten.
